The corporate world is a vast and dynamic environment filled with challenges and opportunities. It is constantly evolving with new and innovative ways to conduct business with the use of technology and new strategies every day. But what happens when a company and its employees aren’t evolving with their environment? Simply put, that organization then finds itself falling short to meet the new expectations of their customers set by the increase in standards by the evolving external global environment and ends up in a downward spiral to failure.
How can an organization prevent this from happening? Through training and development. Here are 3 benefits of training and development within an organization.
1. Keeping up with changes in the industry.
Training and development allows an organization to identify changes within their industry and provides its employees with the skills necessary to meet those demands. It allows the organization to stay competitive by developing its staff to navigate the challenges of these new changes and capitalizing on any opportunities the changes may present.
2. Helps to promote from within the organization.
Hiring externally can be a time-consuming and expensive process for many organizations. Through training and development, a company can identify individuals within its own organization and train those individuals to fill promotion posts that it would have otherwise tried to fill with external applicants. These individuals would have already known and been a part of the organization's operations, culture, and transition into performance much faster than an external hire thus increasing productivity and employee morale.
3. Decreased employee turnover.
Training and development within an organization is a major contributing factor to reducing employee turnover. Providing employees with the opportunity to improve themselves by learning new skills while attaining knowledge, allows employees to feel fulfilled and remain with a company longer. It is also a great way of holding onto skilled employees as opposed to losing them to other organizations.
